Years in Practice
The best gift we can receive from our clients is their referrals and testimonials. We are grateful for the many kind words they have consented to share with you here.
"I had never had a good experience with a lawyer until I met David Leibowitz. In fact, the advice from another lawyer cost me more than $1 million dollars. David's real estate expertise is impeccable. He is Illinois' best kept secret. He was the most informed and knowledgeable attorney I have ever met. I trust David Leibowitz with my life and my future and I know he won't let me down. I'll never be able to thank or repay him enough. He is THE BEST! I only wish some of friends and business associates would have met him before they took the harder way out."
"I recently had the pleasure of working with David Leibowitz regarding my student loans. He was very attentive and informative throughout the process and answered all my questions, no matter how small. With his vast knowledge, he was able to explain every option in detail that made sense for my situation. Great trustworthy attorneys are hard to come by and David is one of the best. I highly recommend David whether it is for personal bankruptcy, business restructuring, student loan issues, or mediation services!"
"I had an amazing experience with this law firm. They worked to get a recovery suit against my sister dismissed based on the overall circumstances of the (quite messy) situation. Had David not done that, her life would have been harmed to an extraordinary degree all due to forces outside of her own control. In our case, David is a true life saver! In addition, he is transparent and educational about the case, he is timely and efficient, and he is professional and so enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend Lakelaw for whatever your legal needs may be.”
“I read about his expertise in the Wall Street Journal. So I reached out to David and within an hour of my email, he responded with his private number which he promptly answered and then proceeded to explain my circumstances even though this meant I would not need to hire him. His candor, transparency, and helpfulness is much appreciated and will not be forgotten if I, or an acquaintance, requires his services in the future. Thank you!”
“Attorney David Leibowitz is as good as it gets! A phenomenal attorney who has excellent negotiating and people skills. He is no-nonsense and obtains results. He is also a caring individual who helped us through some very difficult times. If you can't feel like you have unsolvable financial problems, it is time to hire David. We avoided bankruptcy and have settled several financial difficulties. Thank you, David!”
"I've worked with Mr. Leibowitz and his staff in a professional capacity. It's said that you don't really know someone until you either marry them or do business with them. I know what it means to be a first class attorney since I have a number of attorneys in my family. I can attest that Mr. Leibowitz and his staff represent the most professional, friendly, and empathetic bankruptcy services out there. Lakelaw all the way!"
“David is the best bankruptcy attorney in Chicago. I met David through networking and was instantly impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail. He has helped me out of a few jams and has acted as consultant for some other attorneys I know. If you are struggling with the threat of bankruptcy, contact him right away!”
"I choose Lakelaw based on the reviews I read online. David Leibowitz and his staff have always been very helpful and professional. Even more so now and I was discharged almost 5 years ago. I continue to seek their expertise with issues I'm having with a 2nd mortgage. The customer service Lakelaw provides is excellent. Even during the bankruptcy process, they made me feel like I was making the right decision when I felt embarrassed about having to file."
"I had a fruitful experience with Lakelaw. I am new to this process, but David understood my situation and provided clear and accurate guidance. With me, communication is critical and David was on point. Also, I noticed everyone in the courtroom knows and respects David. This is someone you need on your side. I recommend Lakelaw."
"I called David's office regarding some questions I had, and quickly discovered he was the NICEST attorney I have ever spoken with! Informative and professional – this guy is good, and he didn’t charge me for a consultation."
"David is an extremely sharp attorney. David’s vast financial acumen combined this with his deep experience and knowledge of the law and courts ensures the best possible results. David is also an early adopter of technology, and he employs it most effectively to the advantage of his clients."
“David Leibowitz represented me in a very complicated case dealing with a divorce arbitration/bankruptcy filing. He responded instantly to my legal needs, was very aggressive in his representation, and he clearly knows the bankruptcy laws forward and backward. He is very professional, will not waste time, and gets the job done. I am very happy with his services.”
"As a mortgage lender, I had to reach out to Lakelaw for one of their past clients. They actually got back to me the same day and worked with the client and myself to get us all the information needed to get their mortgage done!"
"Very fast and easy, David made us feel comfortable with our decision. 10 years later, I needed some of the records. He got them for me in minutes! I recommend working with Lakelaw."
"Our firm worked with David in his capacity as a bankruptcy trustee and through hard work and sound problem solving we ended up with a great result. I would highly recommend working with David and we hope to work with him again."
“Mr. Leibowitz and his office staff are very nice and helpful. They have helped me in a couple of my cases and have always been very professional. They kept me in the loop with my cases and explained everything if I didn't understand stuff. Mr. Leibowitz goes above and beyond in helping you get a fair shot in your cases! I would recommend Lakelaw with anything legal you are needing help with.”
"David is an incredibly knowledgeable practitioner. I had a client with a difficult financial circumstance after a life changing injury caused by someone without enough available insurance coverage to adequately care for her. A tragic circumstance where the best I can do simply is not enough…by a long shot… After speaking with David, we had a clear plan for my client to navigate her very difficult financial circumstances."
